In Miami, air conditioning is so overrated. Head outdoors for a breath of fresh air instead — at a free film screening. Once a month, Movies Under the Stars projects indie films at the future home of Canvas, a work-meets-play building debuting in Miami's Arts + Entertainment District. Nearly a dozen cinematic gems have been screened since January 2015, and for an idea of the kind of movies screened, consider this month's flick: multiple Goya Award–winning Spanish mystery Marshland (La Isla Mínima is the Spanish title). Next month's title hasn't been announced yet, but you can expect something of the same caliber. Stay tuned for more summertime cinema under the sky.
